My dog just died an hour ago. He is 9 years old was strong, healthy, and happy. He threw up once last night and earlier today he was jumping around acting perfectly normal. At 1 am I heard him throw up again so I went to check on him. He had a mixture of foam and saliva hanging from his mouth. He drank nearly a gallon and a half of water on a period of an hour, throwing up three times in that time period and it was all clear. We comforted him and stayed with him. He was delirious and barely coherent he eventually started breathing hard and he got up walked outside and collapsed. Minutes later he had a seizure and a couple of convulsions and died in my arms. Please if you know anything about this write back. We have other dogs and need to know of they will be ok
So sorry to hear about your dog. We had a real scare with ours last year. She is ok now, Thank God!
All I can think of is maybe she got into some poison. Do you have oleanders in the yard or any other poisonous plants? Could she have gotten into some rat poison? It takes about 24 hours for rat poison to kill them. It looks purple most of the time. You might want to check your yard for it.
We are very sorry for your sudden loss. We also have a member -to-member dogs community where I'm sure our members can help, too. Please feel free to stop by there, too -- http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Dogs/show/4
